Diversity & Representation

Marketers are grappling with the responsibility of ensuring that the messages they put out into the world are inclusive of the people they are trying to reach. This is no longer an invisible issue, but a priority with serious business imperatives and the magnifying lens of an increasingly aware public. As companies are beginning to navigate the sea change, there is a lot of headway to make. This Session will seek to diagnose the issue and what progress is being made towards a more equitable media environment and what marketers can do to shift the tides.


Meet and learn from the change-makers who are working to create impact for their organizations and the world at large, whether it’s through technological innovation, leading social change, or unblocking the pathways to creative solutions.
